    I’ve just finished my first Lois dress and it definitely won’t be my last. I was put off buying it for a while as it’s described as being for “super-advanced sewers”. But I love the style so eventually I decided to try. The instructions are excellent - photographs of each step which make it all a lot easier, even the invisible zip. I decided to skip the tear off vilene and stay-stitched a lot of edges instead which worked well in the fabric I was using - a cotton lawn. Perhaps the vilene would be more necessary to stabilise a trickier fabric.. It came together beautifully - like a perfect jigsaw and not too many pieces really. There is quite a lot of ease so I checked the finished garment sizes closely and sized down and got exactly the fit I wanted. It’s fantastically flattering, skimming over the curves, lengthening legs and feels wonderful on. I can’t wait to make more! What Fabric next??
